Speaking after the match, coach Shin Tae-yong (U23 Indonesia) said: “I want to thank the players, they did a great job in this match.

Before entering the match against Myanmar U23, we knew that we needed at least 1 point to continue. I told the players it was going to be a very difficult game. Because Myanmar U23 is a well-organized team, I asked the players to go high, press the kick from the first minutes and was effective with 2 goals in the lead.

This is completely different from the tactics in the match against U23 Philippines (U23 Indonesia won 4-0). Because I noticed that U23 Philippines can be tall but slow to turn, their defense is also not good, so I decided to defend and counter-attack.

In general, depending on the opponent, U23 Indonesia will choose the most suitable strategy.”

In the past matches, U23 Indonesia has always received enthusiastic support from the fans of thousands of islands. Coach Shin Tae-yong expressed his gratitude to the fans who came to the field to cheer for Indonesia U23 at SEA Games 31:

“We will try our best to bring more joy to Indonesian fans,” emphasized the Korean coach.

In conclusion, coach Shin Tae-yong expressed his belief: “In Group B, I think Malaysia U23 and Thailand U23 will win the right to the semi-finals. We will prepare carefully to win good results even though the opponent is the opponent. U23 Malaysia or Thailand”.

For his part, coach Velizar Popov (U23 Myanmar) said: “We lost this match, but throughout the tournament, I am proud of my players, especially the way they performed in the second half.

You only really fail when you give up. We fought to the last minute and we were not the losers.

For me, U23 Vietnam and U23 Indonesia are the two strongest teams in this tournament. We have to play with many seasoned players who have played the AFF Cup 2020. Myanmar U23 also had a valuable experience at the 31st SEA Games.”

Reflecting on the match against Indonesia U23, Coach Popov said: “We performed well in the second half, controlling the ball, creating many chances.

Obviously Myanmar U23 played much better than 3 years ago at SEA Games 2019″.

When the reporter asked about meeting U23 Indonesia and U23 Vietnam, which opponent is more difficult to play? Coach Popov expressed: “I cannot comment in detail because each team has its own style of play.

U23 Indonesia is faster, more dangerous on the counter-attack and more creative. And U23 Vietnam has good physical strength, very tight defense.

With Myanmar U23, our body shape and fitness are not as good as U23 Vietnam and U23 Indonesia. I wish U23 Vietnam and U23 Indonesia good luck in the final.”
